Let The Eagle Soar

According to the Roswell Daily Record, President Bush spoke the other day at the Artesia, NM high school graduation. The paper reported that Bush felt "liberated" to no longer occupy the White House. Apparently, he is so liberated that he feels free to speak anywhere that is virtually nowhere. According to the Daily Record story,

After his speech, Bush was presented with "Freedom's Fire," a sculpture of an eagle taking flight from a torch, that was inspired by his 2004 inaugural address. The sculpture will be dedicated at City Hall on Memorial Day in honor of Bush and America's veterans.

An eagle taking flight from a torch? Double entendre, anyone?

A similar AP report noted that Bush is in the process of writing a memoir regarding the "tough decisions he had to make as president." Perhaps he should entitle it, "How my pet goat got got."
